Good Shepherd Homecare and Hospice care for individuals suffering from serious illness, as well as their families and caregivers. We’re here to provide an integrative, holistic (physical, emotional, social, and spiritual) approach to care that focuses on the whole person rather than on individual symptoms. We are here through a continuum of care, spanning the course of the disease through bereavement. Our knowledgeable, compassionate staff is here to help patients make choices about their care, to support those who are grieving, and to educate the professional and lay communities on end-of-life issues.
Our mission is to honor every moment in life.
Our vision is to be the premier non-profit Good Shepherd Homecare and Hospice provider of compassionate, quality affordable health, wellness, and support services. Committed to preserving hope, dignity, and independence in the sheltering embrace of a home environment.
- Excellence – Our conviction that today’s best practice is merely a strong foundation for tomorrow’s services.
- Humanity – Our commitment to giving back to the community in greater measures than we receive.
- Integrity – Our willingness to be held accountable for our actions and those of our organization.
